HOW TO STAY YOUNG AND NOT DIE
Did you know that you have bacteria inside of you that is responsible for creating your energy?
It’s called Mitochondria.
Mitochondria is a bacteria imbedded in most of our cells.
Back when we were single cell organisms, we were a host cell to this bacteria…
But over millions of years of evolution that Single cell became human and that bacteria became mitochondria.
One can not survive without the other.
Now that we’ve evolved into a living organism of over 50 trillion cells that make up “us”…
It’s safe to say that if you’re not keeping this bacteria healthy… it will kill you.
Let me explain.
But before I do, we have to introduce a familiar (and highly lethal) character that most of us know quit well…
Have you ever heard that “stress is the #1 killer”?
Well, it’s true.
When cells are under constant stress, mitochondria cannot make energy efficiently.
This leads to the production of molecules called ROS (reactive oxygen species) a.k.a. free radicals
ROS are unstable atoms with unpaired electrons.
When these free radicals are present within the body they cause damage to your cells with a process called oxidation.
In response to all of this…
Your body sends vitamin C to your liver from the foods you consume…
Causing the body to essentially “leech” vitamin C from other areas of the body to make up for the deficiency….
Which means there’s less vitamin C to create collagen, the protective tissue of your skin, teeth, cartilage…
Decreases immune response, inability to heal, inflammation, and much more.
The #1 things here is to remember that it’s easier to prevent mitochondria damage than it is to reverse it… and now you can see why.
When free from stress…
Mitochondria’s job is to extract energy from the food you eat, combine it with oxygen, and turn it into ATP.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an organic compound that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells…
Things like muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis.
If this process slows down or becomes damaged, they start producing free radicals within the body that lead to aging and eventually death.
When stressors lead to mitochondria becoming fatigued… they can no longer produce the antioxidants to combat their free radicals.
Inflammation sets in at that point and inflammatory agents, like cytokines, are produced…
But even then it still can’t keep up with the oxidative stress.
You get one of the 4 biggest human killers…
… and you die a painful death.
This is is why hustling and grinding will literally kill you.
The best way to avoid all of this is to reduce free radicals in your body, by down regulating as much stress in your life as possible.
And you don’t need a fancy medicine or doctor to help you achieve it.
There’s a few things you can do right now today, for free, that can start to not only prevent disease… but even reverse it!
It’s not magic and it’s not spiritual…
